  1. You kidding me? The CPU isn't preventing it from working. The integrated intel graphics is. And that cannot be replaced.
  2. ok then, sorry. I dont know much about computers

    No need to apologize :??:
    GTA4 is a rather modern game. Here are the minimum system requirements:

    The intel integrated graphics very much under-perform their competitors right now. Even so, I wouldn't try to play GTA4 on integrated graphics.
    If you have nothing to play GTA4 on right now and want to play it, you'd be looking to at least a $400 desktop machine, not including a monitor. Did you just want to play it on your laptop or are you stuck without something to play it on?
  4. im stuck without anything to play it on, but i do have a dell dimension 3100 that has not been upgraded. It might be cheaper to upgrade that than a whole new computer.

    Probably not. Thats your mobo and it only has a PCIe x1 slot. Wont work for a GPU.

    http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfb/desktops/dimen_3100/pd.aspx?refid=dimen_3100&cs=28&s=dfb

    Thats your PC.

    You are better off getting a new PC TBH. You can build a decent one for $400 is you go with a AMD setup since they have decent systems for pretty cheap and a mid range HD5K series GPU.

    GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard $69.99

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103872

    AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX445WFGMBOX $77.99 (want at least a triple core for GTA4, trust me)

    You can use the DDR2 from the Dell as well as the case so that cuts $100 from the budget.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102873

    SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card $139.99

    Total: $289.97. As I said, the case should fit the mobo and GPU. You can use the memory since it has 2GB of DDR2 and the mobo supports DDR2.

    For the HDD though, I would upgrade it but its your choice. Your current HDD is a UIDE based and will bottleneck your system pretty badly. If you add in a HDD like this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148395

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $54.99

    The total is: $344.96

    that HDD would be good since it is SATA 3.0 and has plenty of space.

    If you need memory get this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145590&cm_re=DDR2-_-20-145-590-_-Product

    2GB of Corsair, $54.99. Only if you have less than 2Gb of RAM.

    Thats what I would do if I were in your shoes.
  6. ^yep, pretty much your only option. The pentium 4 is way too old and GTA4 is poorly optimized. It needs more than one CPU core to play. If you want to cut your budget, I wouldn't go any lower than a radeon 4670. Or well, any card under about $70 today.
  7. this is going to cost quite a bit for a 20 dollar game :sweat: ah well at least PC games are cheaper than console counterparts.
  8. Oh how much would it cost to get a profesional to install these componets? i dont want to accidently fry my computer due to not knowing what i am doing.

    At my local computer shop, the price is $50 for a system build. But if you have a tekky friend, they might be willing to do it for free. It wouldn't take them much time.
